In his new book, Tom Ridge will say that members of the Bush administration pressured him to raise the terror alert level for political reasons. A former Bush White House communication director has resorted to name calling to refute the charge.

“During the 2004 presidential campaign we were having a very political discussion about terrorism,” said Nicolle Wallace. “But that is quite different from what [Tom Ridge] very, I think in a very wussy way alleges.”

Wallace appeared as a panel member on “Fox News Sunday.”
